Came home and started on the turkey. I have to confess... I am not making the rolls this year, instead we are having Costco rolls! OK, since I confessed about the rolls.... I have to say that I also bought the pie! I am cooking the turkey and Glen is making the mashed potatoes!
Our other Thanksgiving day tradition is to go through the adds and figure out what we want to buy at the black Friday. We map out our stores, what we need to buy and the times. The stores are starting to mess our plans by opening the stores earlier and earlier but... We LOVE going! So here are 2 of my favorite commercials from target.... TOO FUNNY!
And this is Glen's.... Yes... He is the guy that will be glued to the door!
Hope everyone has a great day with family and friends. I am thankful for my husband, my wonderful kids, my extended family and my dear friends that has accepted me the way I am!

It's official.... Tori and I are signed up to run the Modesto 5k Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day! Our first official run! Our goal is to run the Modesto half marathon in March... I am scared but excited the same time. Tori has become my inspiration and my support. Who would it thought that running would bring us closer together? I am loving the time we are spending together and working on achieving our goal.
Susan and I supporting Tori in achieving her (our!) goal. We wore our training shirts to school! Tori was super excited to show off her new outfit and be a part of Mrs. Taylor's team!

About 2 1/2 weeks ago I got really sick with double ear infection and sinus infection. After antibiotics and lots of sleep, I thought I got over being sick. WELL... My ears feel like they are going to pop out of my head from all the pressure building inside...not a good feeling. After being told by many people to call the doctor again, I finally did. Since Kaiser has this thing about letting people actually see the doctor, I had a phone appointment with my doctor. I have a hard time understanding him face-to-face, so this call was pretty interesting... he said "blah, blah, blah.... yeah?" and I answered... "yes"! NO IDEA WHAT HE WAS SAYING! I finally got my point across on how I was feeling and ended up with a prescription and you should "blah, blah, blah"! "prescription will be ready in 30 minutes", he said. Knowing well it wouldn't be, I waited until 8:00pm and guess what? IT WAS NOT READY! Had to wait another 30 minutes to be ready. What's the point of them "calling it in" when you still have to "check in" and then they fill your prescription up? UGH!

Yes people.... I am running (trying to!). It all started with a co-worker and that is all she talked about.... run, run, run. Then, the boss man got involved and another co-worker and so as people were joining on the bandwagon, I was opposed to it, until I gave in and gave it a try. I HATE running! I feel like I am going to DIE! BUT.... as time is passing and the more time I spend out and about with the two different groups I involved myself with, I am starting to get better but still not LOVING IT! I have decided that my first official run will be the Modesto Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day. I am excited and I have to say, with my darling daughter at my side, things seem so much better and easier. She pushes me to go faster and finish. She beats me every time, so I need to get better so I can pass her up!!! This is turning out to be a great mother-daughter bonding time. We have fun running together and she hates when "we" have to skip anything! So the goal is to run the Modesto half or full marathon in March. I hope we can do it!
